Cr Baberowski - Community Groups Showcase and upcoming events
  • Monday 12 April 2021

Community Groups Showcase

With construction works progressing well on the Beerwah library extension, I’m so delighted that our local community is also thinking ahead to its completion, which is scheduled for late June (subject to weather and site conditions). It has been suggested that the official opening of the facility could coincide with an expo of sorts, showcasing as many of our community groups operating throughout our townships. There are new residents who would certainly benefit from being able to discover what community groups and interests we have! Do you have any ideas that could also coincide with an opening event? I’d really like to hear your thoughts. Contact my office via division1@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au or call 5420 8987.

Anzac Day

I’m pleased that we will be able to pay our respects on Anzac Day at community marches and services again in 2021. In addition, the inspiring Driveway Dawn Services that began in 2020 will also continue and are a great way for everybody to share their thanks, no matter where they may be on April 25.  As we all know however, our new normal is to respond to any health alerts that may present themselves.  Please remain COVID Safe and follow event requirements in honouring our ANZACs this year.

Heritage Events

Also in April, Council’s Cultural Heritage Services team deliver a free morning of guest speakers at the annual Heritage Symposium, April 29 at the Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct.  From 10am – 2pm, hear talks focused on the theme of Heritage, Sustainability and the Environment.
